Embattled Nikki Haley Appointee Hospitalized
Nikki Haley’s embattled welfare czarina collapsed in her office on Monday and was taken by one of her employees to a nearby hospital for evaluation.
S.C. Department of Social Services (SCDSS) director Lillian Koller was treated for an undisclosed ailment and released, we’re told.
